I would definitely recommend making these cookies to anyone. They are fantastic!! If you cook them properly, they are moist and tender. The flavor is great!!!

25 Reviews for Orange Spice Molasses Cookies
I've had much better tasting molasses cookies. Maybe its all the pulverized oatmeal diluting the flavor, or not enough "spice" flavor, but to me, these were kind of bland. Even with the orange zest in the dough and in the rolling sugar. They were extremely hard to roll, I put the bowl in the fridge overnight and once hardened they were a little easier to roll. But all in all, I won't make these again. There are much better tasting and easier-to-make recipes.
Needs a little less cloves and I only used about 1 tbs of zest. I also used Stevia instead of granulated sugar and did not roll the cookies in anything. Wonderful!
Wow, these are almost too flavorful! I think I could have definitely used less cloves and allspice.....but they are still tasty and it's nice that they are moderately healthy. I did leave the black pepper out already.....just seemed like a scary cookie ingredient for me.
